BIBA announces 2018 conference theme 'Innovate Evolve Thrive'
The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) has announced 'Innovate Evolve Thrive’ as the theme for its 2018 Conference & Exhibition to be held at Manchester Central on May 16th & 17th.
Building on last year’s theme of ‘Connections’, BIBA is keen to explore the world of insurance innovation as InsurTech establishes itself as the most eagerly anticipated opportunity in insurance product development and delivery for many years.
BIBA sees many positives in this evolution: ‘Taking a broader perspective on change, we see tech-driven solutions as ‘enablers’, allowing both brokers and customers to take advantage of faster delivery models and greater consumer freedom from a more personalised approach to insurance cover’ said Steve White, BIBA’s Chief Executive.
White added: Though the 2018 conference will develop ideas around innovation all brokers will be able to come back from the show - Europe’s largest insurance broking event, with more than 7000 visitors and 200+ stands - with new contacts, ideas and business opportunities unavailable anywhere else.
Keynote speakers and seminar choices will be announced early in 2018, while the Exhibition goes on sale today. The opening few days of the sales process is always extremely busy, with 85% of stands in the most popular parts of the hall selling out within days.
The 2018 BIBA Conference & Exhibition will return to Manchester, a very popular choice of venue with exhibitors and delegates. The central location, with access to a wide range of hotel rooms, restaurants and bars, becomes the home of the UK’s insurance sector in May.
Lindsay Campbell, BIBA’s Conference Organiser, added ‘As always we are looking at ways in which the conference programme can reflect the theme, so expect to see sessions on innovation and creativity. And once again we will be developing a full conference programme for young brokers. Young Broker Day has become an established part of the conference mix and is open to all BIBA member brokers aged 30 or younger.’
